The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is governed by the SCDOT Commission. The Commission is the general policy making authority of the Department. Its duties and powers are outlined in Section 57-1-10(1) and Sections 57-1-310, et seq. of the Code of Laws of South Carolina, as amended.
The Commission is comprised of eight members, seven of whom are elected by the legislative delegations of each of the state's Congressional Districts and one at-large member who is appointed by the Governor. Each Commissioner must be qualified and screened by the Joint Transportation Committee prior to election or appointment. The Commission annually elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman in January, whose duties are assumed in February.
The Commission appoints the Secretary of Transportation, who is the chief administrative officer of the Department. SCDOT's Secretary of Transportation carries out the policies of the Commission and represents the Department in dealings with other state agencies, local governments, special districts, other states and the federal government.
